Filters upgraded to combat recent wiki-spam innovations

Those of you watching WikiFur's recent changes this week may have noticed an influx of spam. There's a new program out which automates spamming to an unprecedented level. We currently get about one attempt to spam every minute, and I only expect this rate to increase.

It will always be possible to post spam if you are determined enough; however, I have enhanced our filters to ensure that the level of spam remains manageable. Editors are welcome to join us in #wikifur-edits to monitor recent changes.
